What is wrong with us?

My daughters reflux is getting worse each day, even with the medication. She’s crying for feeds but refusing both ways of being fed, or when she is being fed, she’s throwing it straight back up. I am having the old familiar panic attacks that I haven’t had in years because I am worried for my daughter. I feel like a failure because the right people will neither diagnose nor treat her tongue tie, other than people who charge for it and I just don’t have the money to travel or to get it done. I feel like I have nobody to talk or turn to because they’re all sick of hearing it and have their own problems. My left boob is also very sore and warm down one side. I’ve been breast feeding as much as she will actually do and hand expressing.

I am a mum to 2 beautiful children. A 5 year old boy and a 6 week old girl. I want to campaign to raise awareness for the issue of lip and tongue tie in the UK. It is my hope and wish that one day, all mums will have their babies checked for the issue at birth and that if it affects feeding journeys, they will receive the proper treatment and support for it.
